When I was making a little gift bag as a thank you for a friend I had just read a blogpost about eye pillows. I decided to make one for her and while I was at it I made another one for myself.

I used this pattern of Leigh Laurel Studios cutting five bits of fabric of 6.3 x 11.4 cm and one piece of 26.7 x 11.4 cm. With seams of 0.6 cm it turned out just wide enough. I filled the pillow with 20 grams of lavender and 160 grams of flax seeds.

When finished I lay down and covered my eyes. How wonderful: the cool dark weight and the lovely smell are very relaxing. Next time I'll add another centimeter length or, even better, I change the 2.5 cm into 2 cm at both ends. But this pillow is definitely something to make again.
